I recently replaced my entire Netgear G network with a Linksys N network, and I see that lots of peeps are having the same problems with the WUSB300N that I am having. I read through most of the threads here regarding various solutions. I've had some success in fixing some of these problems with the Marvell driver that is mentioned in several threads; however, the instructions and links for obtaining this driver do not work, and there are no clear instructions for getting it that I could find here.
So, here's how you do it for Vista. I have an XP machine as well with the same adapter on it, but haven't addressed that one yet.
Problems fixed after switching to the Marvell driver:
How do you get this driver on Vista? Very simple, through Windows Update:
That's it! I don't know if this driver is even available on XP... trying to fix that machine is my next step.

The XP UI for WinUp is web-based, and the steps different to find it. I'll leave that as an exercise to the reader. If you really get stuck and just absolutely can't find it for XP, post and I'll write up some instructions.
Same improvement results on XP as on Vista. Besides fixing the stuttering problem, everything seems faster and snappier. For example, on a PC->PC large file copy, I used to get between 1-4 Mbps on my G network (router is downstairs, computers upstairs).
With the new N network and Linksys drivers, was getting 10-13 Mbps between the two machines, with instability. With Marvell driver on both machines, I get 17-20Mbps, very stable.
Love to hear other's experiences with this driver.

Many many thanks
I bought an XPS 435MT a month ago, sound distortion problem, many calls to a call centre in India, computer replaced, same problem, stumbled on this page 2 hours ago, I could scarcely believe the solution, there was the optional download as described. Sound now perfect.
So thanks again to a very sound person wishing you the best.
